I hear people like Philip Bloom and others talk about not going over too high of an ISO value (1600) because the video will become noisy, so I thought I would give it a try to see what ISO values start to introduce noise.
In this video I try the ISO’s at 400, 800, 1600 and 3200. To be honest I didn’t see that much noise at 3200 and I am not sure why. I am guessing it is because I am using a fast lens f/1.8 and I have plenty of light from my sliding doors in my office.
Even though this test should have been done at night I learned a lot from it for the video interviews that I normally do.
Higher ISO values for video at 720p is much more forgiving than I thought with a good amount of light. However this is not the case when viewing pictures shoot at ISO 3200.
